An ash plume rises above the summit of Karymsky in January 1996. Explosive eruptions began on 2 January from the summit and SW flank. On the same day a powerful explosive eruption took place from Akademia Nauk caldera, the smooth area to the right. The Akademia Nauk eruption lasted only a day, but long-term activity continued at Karymsky.
